    1. Good to know this. Thank you so much for the feedback! :)

  15. Hi is the milk powdered milk or in liquid form?

  16. Hey I made the cake in a single shot but it didn't rise enough. The consistency was quite thinner than what it looks in the pic here. But it's cooked well :)

    The worrying part is, the frosting looks like the milk has spoilt in it o_O please suggest.

  17. I am sorry for that.. I am not sure where went wrong. Add milk little by little to the frosting till you get the right consistency. or add more powdered sugar to adjust the consistency. Sorry for the late response.
